TRADITIONAL LUXURY ESTATE - HEATED POOL - EVERY AMENITY

East Hampton Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 baths, heated 50' pool, sleeps 9, great entertaining space

Magnificent Village Tudor. This secluded, historic gem features majestic living/entertaining quarters, A/C, and a 50' heated, gunite pool. This 8000 sq. ft. home with soaring cathedral ceilings and immense limestone fireplace, dates from 1916. In its earlier days it was a much beloved theater, called The Playhouse. Short stroll to town, theaters, shops, galleries, restaurants, to the Duck Pond, and to the best sparkling ocean beaches. In addition to 5 airy bedrooms, 4.5 baths and outdoor pool shower, The Playhouse features a vast and dramatic great room ( the former theater) with a Steinway grand piano.

For entertaining or relaxation, there is no more beautiful place. Enjoy the 3+ lush acres of vintage landscaping, stone terraces, heated pool, and graceful fountain. All original detail has been preserved, making The Playhouse a perfect mix of classic design and modern amenities - in the heart of East Hampton.

The Real Thing: The Playhouse one of a Kind - In the heart of East Hampton, yet in a timeless world of its own. An impeccably maintained 1916 estate, with original detail lovingly preserved, the house and property provide a unique retreat. There's nothing like it in the Hamptons.

Arts Lovers: All Summer and into the fall, The Hamptons are the center of arts and social life: superb cultural exhibits, first run movies, world class music recitals, as well as gallery events, celebrity author readings, antiques fairs, home and garden tours, the Hamptons Classic, and gala Opening Nights. Attend new & classic plays at Bay Street Theater and Guild Hall. In October, East Hampton is home to the Hampton's Film Festival. Discoveries abound at this intimate, star studded showcase of what's next in the world of movies.

The Playhouse, while utterly secluded, is located at the heart of the Hamptons' vibrant arts and social scene.

Outdoor Pleasures: Endless, unspoiled ocean beaches are less than 5 minutes' drive from The Playhouse - as well as fishing, boating, tennis, biking, horseback riding. The Wildllife Preserve that borders the property offers enchanting trails, streams, wooden bridges, and a Duck Pond that delights children of all ages. Adjoining ponds and waterways are home to abundant wildfowl all year long.

Bicycle to Village, marinas, parks, bay beaches, and well loved Hamptons locales: Georgica, Lily Pond Lane, Springs, Sag Harbor, Shelter Island Ferry, Cedar Point, Lazy Point, Walking Dunes, 3 Mile Harbor.

Enjoy: In July, East Hampton's 4th of July Fireworks on the Beach, and its Village parade - In August, Artists & Writers Softball Game &The Fishermen's Fair at Ashwagh Hall - On Labor Day Weekend, The Hamptons Classic, with Olympic equestrians - All summer long: water sports, garden tours, nature walks, area wine tours and tastings.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Your home is beyond lovely …enchanting. I am delighted with it.



We never imagined that we would find a private home of such architectural and historical interest on a vacation rental website. Our weekend at the Playhouse was an escape from an escape! It was so quiet and the gardens are so lovely and otherworldly that we felt transported from the bustle of the Hamptons when we wanted to be, but were close enough to town to walk.



What perfection!

We had such a cozy weekend … lit the fire and then enjoyed hot wine in front of its flames.



I hope to have the good fortune of renting the house again sometime in the future.

Thank you very much

Warm regards

This perfectly preserved private home defines the historic Woodhouse Family legacy that created East Hampton as an arts-loving summer destination in the years from 1910-1920. The Playhouse was built by Mary Woodhouse for her daughter, in 1915, and has belonged only to the Woodhouse and Brockman families since then. The Playhouse has been lovingly and artfully maintained to preserve all its unique characteristics of a Tudor Playhouse turned luxury private residence.

Magnificent entertaining setting with gracious bedrooms and en suite baths; heated, saltwater 50' gunite pool, original fountains, stone terraces, garden sculptures and towering copper beeches as well as original specimen plantings. A/C, laundry, chef's kitchen. Magical interior balconies and 40' cathedral ceilings in the Great Room.

Fairy tale site with all modern conveniences.
